We stopped in for a quick lunch, not disappointed. Shared pizza, salad and a pasta dish. Delish. We all agreed we would return. Service was as good as the food.

Love this place! Try to eat there once a week. Great food, service, atmosphere and people. The meatballs, pasta, chicken, hot bread right out of the oven, pizza, Italian beer......all of it.

It always amazes me how some of the best places to eat are the ones that are buried in the corners of some strip mall. Papa Giorgio's is no exception. And once you walk through the door, you can relax and kick back with "family."...More
